after 9/11, thousands of people with the opposite of katrina because fema had control. giving up on individuals helping neighbors, local government, that is a serious problem and why we are bankrupt. all the money that will go out, there is no money in the paint and -- bank so they will just borrow and print and centralize the power to be in washington dc part of that is bureaucratic and in sufficient. john: thank you for all you have done to wake people up. but i fear we will not have much convince -- success convincing people we don't need fema. even though government fails part instinct leads us to assume washington has the best. they don't. they fail all the time. fema fails constantly. after hurricane hugo one senator called it bureaucratic jackasses to get the hell out of the way. they said prove it but after hurricane andrew even in your times reported it is unclear who was in charge of the relief ever. mikulski said the response was seen as a disaster itself. they said they would fix it then came hurricane katrina and nobles to thousand people died. fema often got in the
, unprecedented. the total cost exceed that of katrina? liz macdonald joins us for a live report and also to assess what is likely in store for investors on wall street tomorrow as well. much more straight ahead. stay with us. ♪ ♪ lou: well, what was once hurricane sandy continues to weaken tonight as the system makes it strike across pennsylvania into southern canada, the worst of sandy's winds are over as the -- what is now called the super storm heads, but windy conditions will continue over the great lakes into tomorrow. forecasters saying the higher elevations of northern west virginia could also get as much as 8 inches of additional snow overnight. well, the trail of destruction, as we reported to you at the outset, leaving at least 39 people dead in this country. more than 8 million customers are without power on the east coast and the economic effects will not be known for some time. joining us now to assess the impact that this circuit will have on the economy, we are joined by fox news editor liz macdonald. let's start with just the straightforward. i mean, the markets close
kind of initial reaction we got after katrina, 2005. i'm not, again not comparing the gravity of the two event but i am comparing the immediate official response over the handling of these events. what i'm also noting is the distinct difference in the media coverage of 2005 versus this storm in 2012. whether it will be an issue a few days from now. pat? >> it could be. what we are seeing, now that the mayor's moment of let them eat cake pass, with the marathon and by the way, i have yet to see him in staten island. >> he has not been there yet. >> doesn't it tell you everything, the people you interviewed said. there is a political effort to run the clock out. with the media, like they've done on libya. just like they've hidden the truth about libya, hide the truth about this in the service of obama's campaign. let's get it straight. >> fox was the first camera crew to go to staten island to show this and others in the media have gone. you can't ignore it. >> there is a disconnect, the politician want to say everything is okay. rereality is this afternoon. what will they do, h
to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and anountsed that the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. when there's complaintcomplaint because they haven't been able to reach out. 1- 800-621-fema or disast disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle
you wondering whether private enterprise can work, we know from walmart and katrina it works. >> walmart and budweiser, gave truckloads of water, not necessarily beer, i know you were disappointed with that. but think of katrina, $2,000 debit cards they worked out well, people went out and bought tattoos and flat screen tvs, we have the mobile homes,. neil: in the mud. >> they sold them for a deep discount, and lost about a billion in that. governor jindal from new orleans, was complaining that federal government messes it up every step of the way, how could you expect them to do well, we could do much better if you just gave us the money, that is what mitt romney says, get federal bureaucrats out. neil: when this came out today, his back up against the wall, what to you say governor? do you say no fema? what do you think he should say. >> right now, it is a very delicate time, i'm not a politician, i say fema screws it up just about every time they get hole of it since they began in carter administration, whether it is a republican or a democrat, but still screwed up, and th
this before. multiple times, hurricane katrina, hugo, et cetera, et cetera. the snow-ma geddon to hit the east coast, each time people thought this is it. they spike for a little bit. 24, 48 hours and then come back to where they were before. >> brenda: jonas? do you have any concerns about this? hurricane isaac when it hit, caused the biggest jump in gas prices in 18 months. >> and in this case, no, in connecticut i couldn't drive because there were trees down and your mobilit goes down to the point where fuel consumption will drop as much as refining capacity unless it freakingly hits the refinery because you can't geto rk, major power outages, no power for a week and you're not consuming energy when you can't turn on the power and can't get to work in your car. so it's a good thing, but keep the gas price froms going bananas in the first place. >> brenda: the east coast provides 6 1/2% of the gas that the u.s. uses. that's kinds of a-- could be a hit. >> i don't think it's going to be a very big hit. look, the prices may well go up, even if just one light bulb at one refinery gets knocked o
response to hurricane katrina, the formaldehyde ligand trailers purchased for katrina victs to live in. and now it is becoming more and more clear hurricane sandy may well be another example of the government blowing it. it's a staten island resident had a same complaints residents of new orleans had seven yea ago. where is fema when we need them. other problems that libal bureaucracy huggers like to ignore. according to a new analysis from the heritage foundation, fema dollars after all taxpayer dollars look more and more lke goody bag, honeypot for presidents to raise. think of them as a political porkbarrel ending agency because that is unfortunately what it has become. the disaster declarations are on the rise. reagan had 28 per year o average. under nine under bill clinton. obama, 153. he takes the cake. heritage foundation rates to put this in perspective in somewhere in america in 2011 disaster occurred every day and a half. so strong it required the intervention of the federal government because each of these disasteroverwhelm the state and the local government. don't misunders
katrina. we really felt like we were being ignored. the rest of the country was seeing something, but it wasn't us. that dramatically started to change yesterday and certainly today with secretary napolitano coming, the national ceo of the red cross. >> no doubt. the boots will stop hitting the ground, whether it is the red cross and fema. fema was knocking on doors. [talking over each other] neil: what were they doing when they were knocking on doors? >> giving people desperately needed information and letting them know what the processes and there were inspctors looking at how to assees the damage to the people can start to get some funding so they can start replacing in putting together their lives. going door-to-door is extremely important. a lot of things that happened today that, you know, need desperately to be done. we are still hurttng. it is a tremendous amount to be done. there are a lot of people are looking for answers and still haven't been gone through. the only backslapping that there should be at all is from the volunteers of the shelters and the hospital staff i
don't do that. we saw that, you will recall, and katrina. all of the wind damage caused by the hurricane and katrina was covered. all or almost of virtually all of the flood damage caused by the dikes that broke and the spreading, the water spreading from lake pontchartrain, none of that was covered because insurance companies generally never inshore flood. they will ensure wind, but they will ensure fled because lead usually means, as you know, entire communities as opposed to this house has wind damage, that does not. this does, that doesn't. flood is to huge a risk for just a general insurance. neil: but with a lot of folks, they did get flood insurance, but it does not necessarily pertain to special circumstances , and not being jaded or cynical about insurance companies, but it is a way to wiggle out of paying you. a lot of them might. >> well, again, you have to read the policy. you have to see what you pay for it. the more you pay them more coverage you get, and the lessee payless coverage, but the important thing to remember here is that when it comes to a hurric
. do you think they would have run the new orleans marathon the week of katrina? >> right. i don't think so. >> steve: of course not. >> gretchen: rest of the headlines for saturday. president obama ordering the military to send extra gallons of fuel to new york and in the wake of seand. gas shortages unless people panicked. gas will be rationed starting at noon people with license plates ending in odd number will only be able to buy gas. cars with license plates ending in even number can fill up on even numbered days. four ohio men busted for stealing mitt romney campaign signs. some were found in a union truck. police found tools that could be used to take signs down. local campaign workers have had problems with signs being stolen. this the is first time someone has been caught. the men were arrested and face misdemeanor charges. people in parts ofism know are going to have to pony up extra money if they want to buy a gun now. cook county, which includes chicago, has approved a tax that charges people 2 a dollars for every gun that they buy. well, the move is expected to raise
, there is debris everywhere but there isn't just devastation. this is an katrina that watch everything away. these buildings still exist. there is a heck of a clean up here to do but this can come back. a little worse down the beach in seaside heights and atlantic city but it will come back but look. look at this debris. junk everywhere. this is going to take a while. this is the roof of the tiki bar which is 300 yards up the beach. this was the roof of it and that is deposited here. i leave you with this shot at the atlantic ocean. it occurred to me today that as i look out there it is almost like nothing happened. the ocean is saying i was upset but i am calm now. i may not stay calm forever but you are good for while. connell: that pictures of beautiful and to come back to the isolation is jarring. what stood out to you today? today is the first day you had a chance to walk around the. >> exactly. the first sunny day. the first real nice day. you hit it exactly right. the contrast in the devastation and the beauty. this is typically what we see after hurricane. took a couple extra days b
with the business of politics is impacted by weather and remember, katrina and what happened with george w. bush's reputation, it's impacted other politicians along the way. let's talk now about the actual event itself. george is a storm chaser. george, have you ever seen-- first of all, it's such a late season hurricane and it's meeting with the arctic air from canada and the low pressure system coming from the west. what's going to -- what's going to happen. first of all, what's it like where you are and what's going to happen? >> well, right now, i'm similar to the weather system from canada, i'm on myself on my way from canada. it's calm right now. getting near the pa-new jersey border getting into position to go down near the water in jersey or long island and i've never seen anything quite like this. been through about 16 hurricanes, including katrina, rita and ike and although this isn't the most powerful storm i've been in, it's certainly the largest and i'm curious to see what's going to happen because it's not often you see this type of combination of weather systems, impacting a pop l
far in advance. >> have you covered many hurricane, katrina and isaac. compare, if you can, for us, some of the images you are seeing of sandy and images that you yourself took from those two storms? >> well, katrina was a fascinating experience, very destructive and the biggest storm i think i have seen, certainly the most destructive hurricane. i was -- dicover isaac a few months ago and irene in new york city. people are learning very quickly, the power of water. it doesn't sound that dramatic. but, boy, when you see it energized and pushed up the way sandy was, it's an awakening. >> we have had at least 69 deaths reported from sandy, so far from when it touched down in the cribbia, to here across the east coast. what about the dangers of the storms? you personally? have you ever experienced close calls? >> hurricane charlie in 2004, intensified unexpectedly and turned and came into the ponte gorda area in florida and nearly killed my partner, greg, a meteorologist and myself. i have learned to be extra careful. i was very satisfied to see how much warning was given regarding sa
are the first major u.s. city to (inaudible) post katrina where he saw firsthand where a critical role these systems played in the city's recovery. i am honored to chair the council because i feel it's crucial that the public sector work side by side with our private sector partners to do everything we can today to ensure we will meet the needs of our residents in the days, weeks and years after a disaster. the objective of the lifeline council are to develop and improve collaboration in the city and county across regions regularly -- to develop and improve collaboration in the city and across the region by regularly convening a group of senior level operation officers of local and regional life line providers, understanding intersystem dependencies of enhancing planning, restoration and reconstruction, share information about the recovery plans and priorities and establish coordination process for life lines restoration and recovery following a major disaster. i'm going to go back to the last slide and just say today's conversation i want to focus around the specific challenges that
have seen is a real team. >> it could be become the second most important storm. hurricane katrina was the most costly and 108 billion. new jersey officials say they are extending the deadline for the unveiling and balance and will send in assistance to the storm battered communities. obama likes to talk about killing bin laden. we will talk about the unmentionable. details about the failure to protect the nation's interest and people in the be up. next. ally bank. why they have a raise your rate cd. tonight our guest, thomas sargent. nobel laureate in economics, and one of the most cited economists in the world. professor sargent, can you tell me what cd rates will be in two years? no. if he can't, no one can. that's why ally has a raise your rate cd. ally bank. your money needs an ally. so, which supeast 4g lte service would yochoose, based on this chart ? don't rush into it, i'm not looking for the fastest answer. obviously verizon. okay, i have a different chart. going that way, does that make a difference ? look at verizon. it's so much more than the other ones. so what if we
with katrina. we learned with irene. we started with much larger cash supplies than we normally would have, and we've been able to manage that cash supply at a much higher level than we have right now than we've ever had before. >> tom: have you been able to replenish the cash supplies in those a.t.m. machines in a timely manner? >> we have been able to replenish. obviously, there will be an a.t.m. here or there that has a problem, that runs out of cash. there are lines at many of these a.t.m.s in the difficult areas, but even as the longest time, it's within the same day it's replenished. we do have story where's we move cash from one branch to the other to help the branches keep cash. we've beefed up the security force toking in throughout the tristate area. >> tom: frank, let me pull back a little bit from the day-to-day operations and i know you're focused on that. you have waived some bank fees for those affected customers in the region. is that going to be much of an impact when you talk about the fourth quarter business? >> i don't see this impact our fourth quarter business by wavi
to hurricane katrina. when that happened late august of 2005, both of these stocks were on the move up. both of them actually traded right near their all time high and in the last few years they tumbled. lowe's went to, and home depot ultimately with 21 with the cash of the market. and people who bought katrina, and long-term investment got waxed pretty good. fast forward, lowe's last time missed the street by a nickel and home depot beat by 4 cents and concensus estimates, and went up home depot, there's a downgrade recently on home depoe and two upgreats on lowe's. to me, i can lie home depot, i think they have better operators and storms and when the storm path went and i just happen to think it's a better operation, better historical execution, so i would be willing to pay extra for it, for both of the stocks. cheryl: and-- >> $30 for lowe's, 58 for home depot and break out 63 for home depot i think it takes off or break out at 33 for lowe's, that could be a takeoff point. cheryl: another positive, unfortunately, coming out of this storm you're going to have new construction and you're g
hurricane katrina. some relief for those in manhattan, new york city mayor michael bloomberg promising that most of the burroughs power will be returned by midnight tonight. but any progress on that front has been severely undercut by long lines again -- attestations the new york governor saying he signed an executive order waiving a requirement that fuel tankers register and pay taxes before unloading insisting his order we will help get gasoline to consumers faster. it is estimated that two-thirds of gasoline stations new jersey and new york are not in business right now. however, it is little comfort for people stuck for long hours in long lines to with no guarantee that they will get gas at the end of that line. but some peole, at least some are beginning to dry. this is a very serious and frustrating matter for literally millions of people in this region. turning now to benghazi, almost two months after the terrorist attack that killed four americans, the cia has released a new timeline, a timeline of its actis suggesting it played a larger role in trying to save those four ameri
was chris back in the bush years when hurricane katrina happened? apparently, that has no impact on natural thing. it is all the president's fault back then and now it is not. >> no, how you respond to it that determines whether it is the president's fault. melissa: we've got to go. >> we'll see about that. thanks. melissa: thanks to both for coming on. appreciate your time. refusing to close for superstorm sandy has some businesses thriving. how serving up clients has never paid so well for the owner of one manhattan restaurant. we had to find a silver lining. at the end of the day it is all about money. ♪ follow the wings. melissa: as sandy was ripping across new york city earlier this week most people were hunkered down, hiding out at home until it was over. most people that is but not everyone. a restaurant in manhattan chose to brave the storm and stayed open throughout the entire thing. since they were one of the only places to do so they actually made a killing. leave it to new yorkers to bank on a disaster and make it work. sirio's owner joins me now. thanks for coming on. we've b

katrina which, you know, so many people blamed the response of fema and so forth on george w. bush. >> are well, it was kind of a benign neglect at that point in time. the president, as you may recall, flew over it initially. he had an idiot running the fema who's still popping off, mr. brown. i think fema is absolutely an agency on the ground here doing wonderful things. the end of the day the one entity of the federal government that works better than anybody else is the military, and sooner or later we're going to have to put a general in the charge as we did katrina, let them get all the stuff done. they have the equipment, the resources, the manpower, and we've got a big problem ahead. and three or four days from now this is going to continue to be a burden for a lot of people's lives, and you're going to need to respond. [inaudible conversations] >> fema, this fema under obama has been getting great marks all the way around, but they learned a lot from katrina, you know? jon: as the father of an army second lieutenant, i have to agree, the u.s. military does its work very wel
president obama and hurricane sandy and president bush and hurricane katrina. that may happen. >> bill: yeah, but i don't think that's going to happen. it's retail politics now. the factor has, i have spoken at the highest levels with the romney campaign and the obama campaign. i said hey, listen, you have got to do an interview with me. it will be a worldwide event. everybody will be watching it. it will be on the internet. you know, this is something you have got to do. they basically say well, that's the word they used that's intriguing. that means he you don't have a chance in hell. intriguing means it is not going to happen. i understand president obama he would have to answer questions about lynn i can't. not -- libya. it's not going to be brian williams here. is he not going to do it because of that i can't understand why mitt romney is not doing it because mitt romney has a story to tell. in my opinion, he has a story to tell. but i think what the strategy is on the romney campaign is to retail it in ohio, virginia, florida, colorado, and nevada real strong and then we have the elect
power has already been restored but it's brutal. this is really our version of katrina. i'm not saying any two tragedies are alike but i've been touring the south shore today in my district and massapequa, lindenhurst, what you're showing is typical of many areas on long island. fema the county executives are meeting with fema to set up exact plans as to how recovery will take place. workers are coming in from all over the country to restore the power but it's a tough haul. i don't want to give anyone any false hope. everything that can be done is being done. i think over the next several days you will see more power being restored but this could go on for another ten days to two weeks. >> are there people still missing? what we saw in hoboken, new jersey, 20,000 people are still there, stuck with water beneath their apartments and their homes but there are a lot of people who chose to ride this storm out, a lot of people who weren't in areas that were supposed to be at high risk and they're still there. >> yes, for instance long beach, which is an island probably 34,000 people on the
about this. we covered katrina so much, and we covered all the horror stories of the patients there. how the generators failed or why is something to look at in days ahead. but for everybody who worked there, as a resident of the city, i want to say thank you. >> you're welcome. it was the whole team. you have to remember that 19 babies that people took one at a time. >> each had that team. incredible. thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> thank you so much. yeah. makes your heart feel good. another critical story is in its final days from now until tuesday. president obama, mitt romney plan to campaign nonstop in battleground states. today the romney campaign added a new one to the list. is that a siphon confidence or is it a bluff? we'll talk about that. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what matters? maybe your bank account is taking too much time and maybe it's costing too much money. introducing bluebird by american express and walmart. your alternative to checking and debit. it's loaded with features, not fees. because we thi
it? >> fema responds rather adroitly to -- katrina notwithstanding, to these disasters. i suspect they're going to be quite responsive right now for those who have been displaced, who have lost family members, who don't have homes. i think there will be a rapid response from the federal government. >> i'm just saying, we could use that money in other areas right now. not necessarily the bond buying program. just an observation. >> maria, i got say, i don't know if the bond buying is actually helping. we're seeing a lot of bond buying. i don't know where that money is going to. we see unemployment raising. >> is survey showed pick ups in demand for most classes in lending right now. so it has had a positive effect in a place where it could matter. we have seen in general some of the interest rates that matter go down in the economy, including mortgages. >> and a big uptick in housing. >> maybe not perfect, but it seems to have had an effect. >> do we anticipate the typical pickup in economic activity following a natural disaster of this magnitude here, ron? >> bill, listen, it's go
barbour model in mississippi after the katrina disaster. he took that disaster and used the opportunity to basically rebuild some of those communities. it takes planning. it takes courage and leadership. i, in fact i suspect you will find in both those states with the governors. bill: that is great example. thanks for bringing that to light. let's bring to what fox news was reporting late last night with regard to libya. a big turn now. now we have this letter that was september out a couple weeks before the attack in benghazi which clearly showed the presence of al qaeda training camps in the town of benghazi. there was a lot of concern about this. where are you on this story today? >> well i think there's a huge gap between what happened and what the administration's told us. only the president can fill the gap with the truth and at the end of the day i think there is it lesz son to be learned and perhaps passed onto the kids. we had seals to ran to the ambassador's aid, in running to his aid they gave their lives. we have an administration that is running from the ambassador, perhaps
, it's much better decided there, than the fema scandals are endless. after katrina they turned away free water from wal-martt stuart: okay, i'm in my house, a wife and two young kids and we have water up the bag stairs, i'm marooned in my bedroom and leaning out the window and saying, private enterprise help me, help me. no, i'm not going to say that. i'm going to say you cops, firefighters, please come get me, i need help this is an emergency. >> that's all local government. why would you want to send your money to washington for your local cops to help you? >> so that you only object to the feds in this. >> i believe unbelievably wasteful, like the feds are, you vote those guys out. stuart: what politician would get elected if he or she said you're on your own. >> it's not saying you're on your own. it's saying we're broke, you need to rely on your local police authorities. if they can't handle it, then in a national emergency, we'll come in, but otherwise, we don't have the money. stuart: you wouldn't expect to win an election on that basis, would you? >> well, i'm not running. s
with expertise, happened in katrina for the city of new orleans and chicago in 1992. they are at this moment in the air coming here to fly and they will be here tonight to help city planners advise him how to start first and get rid of the why. robert: back to you in the city of. melissa: you see the panel -- the tunnel completely filled with water. ashley: that is critical to the transportation story here. no one can get in or out of manhattan with transportation shutdown and the roads a mess. very difficult, unable to give any timetable but essentially more damage. let's go to new jersey talking of damage and assessing what sandy did. two million customers without power. jeff flock was in point pleasant beach in the teeth of the storm yesterday and today surveying the damage. jeff: had quite a ride. take a look. plenty of water. this street was like a river last night. is covered with water as well as stand. follow me this way, you will see there is sand all over the city streets in point pleasant beach. the other problem even though they cleared ocean drive up here, natural gas leaks, wat
been through with katrina and rita down on the gulf, you have to know that government has a purpose. i have always said that. it can be constructive. it's an umbrella on a rainy day to take the story at hand with sandy's enormous storm. but governor romney does not want to support government in the way that helps people. and that means eliminating medicare. it means not caring about seniors, not providing for pell grants. you can't flip-flop in the last hours to suggest you would embrace government. we all want government to be efficient, and president obama has been a leader. he has the smallest federal government we have had in decades under president obama. smallest number of employees, but it has been efficient enough to be effective on the east coast, rising to the occasion, to the extent that republican governors have given the president and his team compliments in their responsiveness and the mayor of new york has endorsed him. it's not about that. it's about the president wanting to support a constructive government and governor romney who is trying to be president, running aga
